Thai’s do love to put their power cables overhead, much to the disappointment of those who like those unblemished urban views. Personally I reckon they are quite cool, adds a certain something to an urban landscape. Looking around at other places, I notice for instance that London is fairly free from overhead power cables. Downside is that roads are constantly being dug up which causes delays. So there’s definitely good reasons for running cables overhead.
Not to mention the imposing hotel tower-block in the background !
Anyway, it’s a fairly common street-view here in Thailand, mopeds and baht-buses, street stalls and power cables … oh and shoe shops with the air-con on full and the doors left open, I never will understand that one ! …
